woodchip, "swithing of" , I'm so pleased that FE. does not allow a editing facility, It's lines like this, that make me smile. :o)

The comp I have is a old AT system AMD K6 500 with a motherboard that was hard to get hold of and I could never change the shut down something that’s different. It would work OK with 95 but never with 98, screen just goes from windows to gray then to black. I then pull the plug

switched off and on,shutdown to dos and got the same black screen.looks like i`m missing or have a corrupted file\s.

I am also tired and ready for bed, body hurts a lot I think I will also pull the plug on this one as well. I am also Wheezing on Water tablets for fluid round the “art”. Is that spelt right

Can you go back to a restore point if you are on WinME

What OS as you said you was on Win98 if so run SFC from the run box. put your Win98 cd in comp
